Ways to Support CAE

You're Invited to a Community Farm & Food Celebration!

In-person Fun: 

Head to Atkins Field on Friday, August 13th from 3 - 6 pm for an afternoon of summer fun to celebrate Open Farm Week and our agricultural community!

Enjoy great food, live music, and activities for both kids and adults. See baby goats, live oxen, and artisan craft demonstrations, and learn how black ash baskets are made. Shop the Hardwick Farmers' Market and taste test heritage tomato varieties to vote for your favorite.

In addition to offerings by our weekly market vendors, signature cocktails by Barr Hill in commemorative ceramic mugs and grilled cheese sandwiches from Jasper Hill Farm will be available for purchase. A raffle of local farm and food products will round out the event and it all supports the Center for an Agricultural Economy!

Summer Auction to Benefit the CAE:

Bidding runs from  August 1 - August 20.

This auction is to benefit the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE) of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Donations include a variety of items made by our talented staff, food businesses & farms, and the greater Hardwick Community.

If a vibrant local food system rooted in our rural communities is important to you, there are many ways you can support CAE:

  • SHARE YOUR ENTHUSIASM WITH A FRIEND! You are the best-qualified person to speak to why this work matters to you.
  • MAKE A RECURRING GIFTMonthly gifts of every size can have a lasting impact on our programs.
  • REMEMBER CAE IN YOUR WILL. A clear directive helps your family understand your wishes, and thoughtful planning can prevent unnecessary tax burdens.
  • MAKE A GIFT OF STOCK. Avoid capital gains taxes by making a direct gift of stock to CAE.
  • SUPPORT OUR PARTNERS. We cannot do what we do without an amazing network of community-based partners who also operate in the greater Hardwick region. Please consider supporting them directly:

We operate on unceded land of the Abenaki people. Please consider learning about the Abenaki tribe and supporting their work to preserve and share their culture, heritage, language, and land. Learn more about Abenaki Helping Abenaki at www.abenakitribe.org.
